[HOT] Missing Maps Training Video Suggestions

Hello althio,

         I did make quite a few additions to the shared document, 
that is a good method for consolidating ideas in one place.

         I am a bit nervous about the 1 min. concept.  1 min. is not 
very long, most topics are going to require a bit more than 
that.  Surely, we can expect the volunteer's attention span to 
stretch to perhaps three or 5 min.   If the videos are only 1 min. 
long, hundreds will be required to cover the whole realm.  Cataloging 
them will be a major task and who will want to wade through scores of 
video listings to find a paltry 1 min. dissertation?

                 Thanks, Cheers . . . . . . . . Spring
